Back pain is the leading cause of missed work in the country and at some point, in our lives, almost everyone will struggle with back pain in some form. Back pain can strike in the upper, middle or lower back regions and affect nearby areas like the shoulders, neck, hips, and knees. Back pain is common but should always be taken seriously. If you experience any of the following symptoms, seeking out treatment could be essential to your spine health:
Aching back muscles
Radiating pain in the shoulders, neck, hips or knees
Worsening pain in the mornings or evenings
Increased pain when standing and sitting
Back pain can be the result of a number of conditions, but the most common culprit is the normal wear and tear of age. As we age the cartilage that cushions our vertebrae can begin to wear down leaving the spine vulnerable to damage and chronic pain. Injury from strenuous physical activity or vehicular accidents can also spark back pain. Poor posture and misalignment of the spine can also lead to back issues over time. Back pain could be an indication that your nerves, discs, muscles or vertebrae are in danger and rapid treatment could help relieve the pain and save your spine.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Back Pain?
Back pain issues could lead to the loss of mobility and the loss of independence so finding the right treatment to address the underlying condition causing your pain could help you maintain your quality of life.

Regenerative Therapy is non-surgical, so you don’t have to sacrifice months of your life to a painful recovery for results. Regenerative Therapy is a holistic solution that focuses on real healing, so you can get back to living pain-free.
Spinal discs are rubbery discs of cartilage that cushion the bones of your spine and absorb the impact of our daily movements. The spinal discs aid flexibility and support making them vital parts of your spine health. When disc degeneration develops the spinal discs can begin to dry out and break down. As the condition progresses the spinal discs begin to lose thickness and buoyancy. When the discs degenerate, it causes painful friction between the bones in the vertebrae and could result in the development of painful bone spurs. Symptoms of disc degeneration include:
Pain in the neck, lower back, buttocks, and thighs
Sporadic bouts of severe pain
Worsening pain with movement
Stiffness and tension
Increased symptoms in the early morning and evening
As disc degeneration progresses the affected discs can crack causing the soft core to herniate and increased pain. These herniated discs can compress the nerves of the spinal column causing complications all over the body. Disc degeneration is often the result of normal aging and wear and tear on the spine. Some cases can develop following trauma like injuries sustained from strenuous activity, fall or vehicular accident. Untreated disc degeneration can lead to painful bony growths at the site of friction called bone spurs, and can also cause a loss of function and immobility.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Disc Degeneration?
Regenerative Therapy is a dual action disc degeneration treatment that works to reduce the inflammation of the condition and boost the body’s natural regeneration ability. Many patients manage disc degeneration symptoms with over the counter pain medication and NSAIDs gambling with the side effects of the medication. Over time the use of these medications can put your vital organs like the heart, liver, and kidneys at risk for damage. Steroid injections are another go to treatment for disc degeneration and although the injections do offer relief from some symptoms the effect is temporary, and the treatment is not recommended for long-term use. Surgery is the most invasive traditional treatment option and many surgical procedures will result in the loss of some level of flexibility and function. Surgery carries significant risks of infection and nerve damage and requires a lengthy painful recovery post-procedure. Regenerative Therapy a holistic non-invasive treatment option for disc degeneration that offers long-term results and pain relief with no downtime or painful recovery. Regenerative Therapy is a non-surgical solution to repair and regenerate your discs and improve the health of your spine.
Facet joints are small joints that connect the vertebrae together to facilitate the flexibility of the spine. Facet Syndrome is a condition that attacks the facet joints causing inflammation and degeneration. Facet joints are essential to healthy spine function and the progression of the condition can compress the nerves in the spinal column causing nerve pain and complications in the extremities. Symptoms of facet syndrome include:
Pain in shoulders
Stiffness in the lumbar region
Painful bending and stretching
Radiating pain in the buttocks and thighs
There are two types of facet syndrome. Cervical facet syndrome affects the neck and cervical region of the spine. Cervical facet syndrome usually presents with pain when rotating the head from shoulder to shoulder and headaches. Lumbar facet joint syndrome occurs in the lower back and can be felt in the lumbar region of the spine, buttocks, and thighs. Normal degeneration from aging is the common cause of facet syndrome but the condition can be the result of trauma such as a fall or vehicular accident.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Facet Syndrome?
Steroid injections and NSAIDs are the usual go-to treatment for facet syndrome to relieve inflammation and pressure from nerves. Some patients respond to physical therapy and spinal manipulation but for more severe cases that put dangerous pressure on the nerves, surgery is recommended. Regenerative Therapy is an effective treatment alternative to drug therapy and surgical treatments. Regenerative Therapy helps to regulate the damaging inflammation in the spinal joints and works with the body’s natural regenerative capability to repair damage to your facet joints. Regenerative Therapy is non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that gives patients the opportunity to safely address facet syndrome without any painful recovery or downtime.
Conditions like disc degeneration and facet syndrome can lead to another issue called spinal stenosis. As changes in the spaces between vertebrae occur from degeneration the spinal canal can become compressed from the pressure. The pressure affects the nerves that pass through the spine through to the lower back and can be felt in the lower extremities. Symptoms of spinal stenosis include:
Tingling and weakness in the lower extremities
Lower back pain
Loss of sensation in lower extremities
There are cases of lumbar stenosis diagnosed in young adults but because of the degeneration necessary to cause the issue, lumbar stenosis often occurs in patients over the age of sixty. Some cases of spinal stenosis are asymptomatic, and others produce severe chronic pain and loss of sensation. If left untreated spinal stenosis can lead to severe nerve damage and loss of mobility.
Is Regenerative Medicine Right for My Lumbar Stenosis?
Regenerative Therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for lumbar stenosis. The non-surgical and non-invasive approach works to repair the damage causing nerve pressure while regulating inflammatory response to stop continued damage while you heal. Regenerative Therapy is a holistic treatment that carries none of the risks or side effects of traditional treatment options like pain medications, NSAIDs and surgery. Regenerative Therapy gives patients the pain relief they need while repairing and restoring the damaged bone and cartilage for a long-term solution. Regenerative Therapy requires no downtime and no painful recovery. This revolutionary treatment helps to heal the conditions causing lumbar stenosis and helps you live pain-free without sacrificing months of your life.
